Wouldn't TP Link provide this beta firmware for download to their customers if it works? It should be made available for downloads in their Support section.

It comes in handy if you have an Ethernet outlet in a certain area but poor wireless signal. Plus it should work better in theory as wifi range extenders cut your speeds in half

Well, in their defense, its probably not thoroughly tested so there's a chance that there's more undiscovered issues. However, you'd think they would bump up the priority on getting this out since an advertised feature doesn't work very well at all.

So this product has been out since August and this issue has presumably been occurring since then. The latest publicly available firmware is dated 6/16/16. Clearly TP-Link does not care.

The beta firmware is working well for me. Could email them and ask for it.

Having been on the other side of the fence, sometimes things are slow. *shrug*

Can anyone share the beta firmware say via googledrive / dropbox please?

Mine is a Singapore region unit, with these versions reported at admin page:
Firmware Version: 1.0.0 Build 20160621 Rel. 51046(EU)
Hardware Version: RE350 v1.0

UPDATE:
I emailed support.sg@tp-link.com , citing this forum thread, and I was emailed the bin file ( re350v1_en-up-ver1-0-0-P1[20170120-rel22124].bin ) within 24 hours.
AP Mode works now. :)

@TP-Admin My RE350 is being used in UK and on the download notes for your firmware it states "Only for Singaporean/Malaysian/HongKong's users". Is there a bug fixed firmware package for UK/Europe, as there is nothing available on UK Support site?
